Dublin 2005-2011 The Dream-Seekers

Dublin have lost only one Leinster SFC game since the start of the 2005 championship but haven't been anywhere nearly as consistent on the All-Ireland stage. A total of 54 players have shared the provincial glory and the All-Ireland agony in that period, with goalkeeper Stephen Cluxton and Alan Brogan (one as a sub) playing in all 34 games.

Here's the list of those who tried to make the big breakthrough and those who are still chasing the great dream (brackets denote having come on as a sub):Stephen Cluxton 34

Alan Brogan 34 (1)
